My question: Is it okay for a christian to take part in P2p file sharing sessions like Kazaa? The reason I'm asking this is that most files like mp3s and softwares are copyrighted. And of course, it's one of my fav. pastimes.

When Morpheous first came out, Record sells INCREASED! Most people DO NOT have CD burner, MP3 players, and the patience/bandwidth to Download all the songs on one album. People just prefer to buy the CD, it is easier. On top of that, there is no logical reason then geed for someone to charge 20 bucks for 10 songs on a plastic disc that gets damages extremely easy. Is it stealing? Good question. How can you “steal” a song? Recording it off the radio, is that stealing? Especially with that new XM radio. What about when you pick up your guitar, and tab out the song from memory? Is that stealing? Music is such an abstract thing, I don’t think we can use words we describe physical object with to classify it. Money, clothing, jewels, these are things we steal. Music can just be grabbed out of the air, it can flow off the top of your head, out of your mouth, or through your fingers! It just isn’t the same.

We talked about this in:


Most of the music I DL is written by people long dead, anyways  Grin

Was there ever a time when Common sence was common?
